Sourcing the best of nature

For several decades, Nexira has committed on preserving the origins of the natural raw materials sourced to create reliable partnership as well as address on must haves such as sustainability and traceability.

Sourcing acerola in Brazil

We are proud to explore and source the best from nature. Research on natural substances has always been of major importance to Nexira. Years of data research combined with in-depth expertise of raw products and plants has led us to become the global leader of supplying and manufacturing natural-origin key ingredients.

Our botanists work with a global network of partners to identify new plants to be analyzed in order to understand their behavior and define the best cultivation, harvest, and supply conditions. These journeys and discoveries lead us sometimes to master our own sourcing fileds, such as for the Acacia or Cactus (NeopuntiaTM and CactineaTM). This enables us to guarantee full traceability and ensure the content of active substances by the best cultural and harvesting practices.

The company’s approach goes beyond environmental protection; it encompasses social development and economic growth in the regions from which it sources its ingredients. Nexira’s sustainability legacy began in the 1970s, decades before others, with a focus on preserving natural resources, particularly acacia forests.
Nexira’s unique multi-pronged approach has seen them become the acacia industry’s first and only company to work closely with an NGO for almost 15 years, as well as national organizations and producers, to create better local living conditions. These efforts have been proven to generate a sustainable harvest of acacia, leading to more qualitative and quantitative production. In collaboration with strategic partners, Nexira aslo secures cactus-derived ingredients like Neopuntia™ and Cactinea™ through sustainable and traceable supply chains. These partnerships not only guarantee the quality and authenticity of the ingredients but also promote fair trade practices and support the local communities involved in cactus cultivation. By emphasizing these initiatives, Nexira showcases its unwavering dedication to sustainability, transparency, and quality in botanical ingredient sourcing.
